Year

Duration
78’
Director
Roman Vital

Since the Swiss government installed a deportation center for rejected asylum seekers in the idyllic mountain village Valzeina, every fourth person in the village is now an illegal immigrant. Life in Paradise – Illegals in the Neighborhood shows the workings of the Swiss asylum policy, how  privileged people from the Western world deal with asylum seekers in our neighborhood, how their lives are affected by this, and what it means to live as a rejected asylum seeker in this ‘paradise’.
